Historic Fentanyl Bust at US-Mexico Border — Trump: “DEMOCRATS want to get off the subject because there’s No Way They Can Justify the Fact A Wall Works” – 2/2/2018

Nancy Pelosi is working hard to block the building of the border wall to protect U.S. Citizens.  It might be a good time to check Pelosi’s bank records to find out who is making deposits into her account.

 

 

Senate Democrats are experts at pitting Americans against each other (race, religion, politics, etc.). Fake news spews lies to half of America and they never question it. Our children are being taught common core that stresses out our children, confuses them and standards that were never developed by classroom teachers or school administrators. Our children cannot pray in the classroom, or pledge allegiance to OUR U.S. Flag.  America is being ripped apart from the inside out, and democrats don’t seem to mind the confusion this causes in our young children.

Half of America is not aware of the war we are facing with drugs, drug lords, human/child sex trafficking and murder, rape, torture.  The media are complicit in that they don’t tell half the country the truth about what is really happening at the border.  If they did, Americans would be in the streets demanding change.

Democrats hate the wall because they think Trump wants to build it to block immigration.  President Trump has said time and time again that LEGAL IMMIGRANTS ARE THE BACKBONE OF THIS COUNTRY.  Great people who follow the law, wait in turn, and then become one of us. Hard Working, law-abiding U.S. Citizens who love America and want to meld into our culture.  Great Americans! PRESIDENT TRUMP wants a wall to stop “ILLEGAL” IMMIGRATION.

The Constitution assigns the President a role as Chief Executive of the Federal Government and Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces.  As Commander in Chief, the President has the authority to send troops into combat. President Trump has sent the military to build a wall and protect the U.S. southern borders.  Nancy Pelosi said she will not give President Trump even one dollar for the wall.  We now KNOW, clearly, that Nancy Pelosi answers to those who fill her pockets and is not upholding the Constitution.  Nancy Pelosi is not doing her job to protect the American people. President Trump is fulfilling his duty TO PROTECT AMERICA FROM FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC ENEMIES!

Trump wants the wall because BORDER SECURITY is begging for it.  They are at the front lines facing all kinds of attacks, bricks, stones, abuse, they help women give birth, children who are so sick and dehydrated, are dying, and they need to nurse them back to health or send them to the hospital.  Children who during their journey are being sexually abused, who are most likely terrified, brought here by human traffickers who pose as their parents and use children to get into America!

Tuberculosis, flu, infections rampant as the number of sick migrants surge at border

“Crisis” of Seriously Ill Migrants Slams Border Patrol — TB, Pneumonia, Influenza, Parasites

Border Patrol faces drug mules who will do anything to get the drugs into America. They face illegals with Tuberculosis, Hepatitis, HIV (which are communicable diseases), chicken pox, measles, dengue, chikungunya, malaria, yellow fever, diphtheria, Ebola, some reports of polio. Yet, we have democrats who want to disband I.C.E. and border patrol agencies.

 

“This is an urgent humanitarian issue. My Administration is committed to leveraging every resource we have to confront this threat, to support the victims and survivors, and to hold traffickers accountable for their heinous crimes.” President Donald J. Trump

Here is something from Judicial Watch on the migrant caravan.    

 

 

President Trump has been to the border, has been all over America, meeting Americans who are victims of illegal crime.  Angel Moms whose families have lost loved ones to this crime that Nancy Pelosi denies exists.

The border wall is not racist, it is to block drugs from coming in, like fentanyl. This drug is killing approximately 300 Americans on a daily basis. We have a right to protect our borders and a right as a sovereign nation. This sovereignty is earned daily with the blood of our soldiers who go to battle so that we can live in peace in America.  Free!

 

 

Answer me this:  who is Pelosi to deny us, our families, our children, the right to be safe in our own Country?  Who is Pelosi working for? Not the U.S.

Nancy Pelosi, the Democrat Party do not represent or protect America!

The crisis at the border is real, but Pelosi won’t feel it because she lives behind walls, with guards who have automatic weapons.  She is safe and comfy, while we suffer. This is why President Trump is forced to do what he is about to do.

America Was About To Go Down the Toilet – Until Trump – 1/28/2019

The Deep State keeps fighting President Trump:  THEIR Deception, pedophilia, child sex trafficking, Woman SEX Trafficking, Drug Lords, Drug Trafficking, Open Borders, the Media – All Designed to destroy America…….make it disappear……..the enslavement of America, our death and open borders to replace us.  But, those of us who are Patriots! who believe in this idea called America…..We keep fighting….at all levels, everywhere.  You can’t kill America’s ideals, the idea to Let Freedom Ring! America, Patriots, WE ARE AWAKE! #TrustThePlan #KAG #MAGA  #WEAreQ!

THEY WANT TRUMP GONE BECAUSE IT STOPS THEM AND THEIR PLAN TO DESTROY US! POTUS TRUMP HAS MILLIONS OF US IN AMERICA and ALL OVER THE WORLD! WE WANT FREEDOM, AT ALL COST!

 

United States Partial Government Shutdown – 1/15/2018

Democrats hate President Donald J. Trump more than anything.  They cannot give President Trump a WIN! Their virulent radical donor base forbids it! Do anything that fights against President Trump to make sure he “never” wins.

The Media works in the background spreading lies, misinforming their followers to a level that maintains them angry, seething against a President they are told is evil and is destroying America.  When the opposite is true.  The left is making sure that their followers never stop to think that they are being brainwashed with lies that will ultimately destroy them, their families, America!

Right now we are all enjoying an incredible economic boom in America.  Jobs are back.  The last jobs report was in and it was amazing!

2018 Ends with 312,000 Jobs Created in December; Strong Year for the Job Market

Democrats have forgotten who they serve. They serve us, U.S. Citizens and we are fed up.  The left has decided to disrespect, insult and threaten the holder of the office of President of the United States.  Democrats have been radicalized against America by those who lurk in the shadows espousing the ideology of Louis Farrakhan and his Nation of Islam.

President Trump’s election threw a monkey wrench into the New World Order plans for America that were all just about finished during the presidencies of Clinton, Bush and Obama.  The left never thought of asking half of America what they wanted.  They just decided that it was going to be that.

QUOTE

To those who refuse to compromise in the name of border security, I would ask: Imagine if it was your child, your husband, or your wife whose life was so cruelly shattered and totally broken? To every member of Congress: Pass a bill that ends this crisis.

Donald J. Trump

President of the United States

The last three presidents Bush’s, Clinton’s, Obama’s have left President Trump a mess here at home and around the world.  Immigration laws are a total disaster with special interests calling the shots.  Trade deals made over the last six decades used to only favor those who made the deals and the other countries.  Destroying America was the left’s and the RINO’s pastime.

In comes President Trump and he starts breaking all the deals and schemes that were set to destroy America and make it disappear into the night, all while taxpayers foot the bill.  We have worked harder, faster and more accurately than any other time in America.  Yet, we were bringing home less.

We voted for President Trump because like him, we were and ARE fed up.  On the other hand, those who planned the demise of America and were making deals and making money, feel threatened.  They have tried to Out president Trump several times.  The left’s behavior is no longer manageable, rational or American.  The left has been Radicalized!  Wake Up America.  We are being destroyed by a rogue Media, telling us lies and dividing us with misinformation.  They bully America via the media.  This is a fight for control of America.

WE CANNOT LOSE THIS FIGHT! The left are undermining the interests of the United States of America.  The democrats have shut down the government long ago and this country is bleeding.  They have spent us into an abyss that they hope we never get out of.

We Win, You Lose! President Trump is doing the right thing.  In order to break the old establishment control, we must fight.  CHANGE REQUIRES PAIN, in order to gain our whole future BACK!

We must fight now, if not now, when? Dan Bongino

The Democrats need to be taught that they cannot bully America via the Media. THEY DOMINATE EVERYTHING IN OUR LIFE.  We must gain control of Our Constitutional rights.  We will never give up on President Trump.   We are his base. We will never forfeit control.

President Trump, take out your Constitution and use your powers to fire democrats in the Senate and to Take Away Their Pay as of Today! Use Your Powers! We need to move on from this! #WWG1WGA!

President Trump & Republican House Did Their Job To Protect America – Schumer, Pelosi Own The Shut Down & America’s Peril – 12/21/2018

Playing games is the left’s main tool and will fight the wall forever.

President Trump fought like a one-man army for this Border Wall vote.  President Trump is determined to fund the wall (steel slats) to protect our southern border from illegal immigration, U.N. Soros cabal planned refugee invasion.  This is one of his main campaign promises to the American people.  As his supporter, I have seen him fight LIKE a Lion for AMERICA.  Those of us who follow “Q” know the truth of what is really going on.  

This man, our President, has been given a mandate by GOD, Military and U.S. Citizens that goes beyond that of a regular President.  The Scope of his job is huge, in ways the uninformed cannot imagine.  What troubles those of us who love America and support POTUS Trump, the U.S. Constitution, the Second Amendment, Freedom, Law & Order, Police, Military, GOD, is that we know the depths to which this President has had to go to save this country.  We have seen America destroyed from the inside out by the last three presidents, the left’s agenda, RINOs, NWO, open border, globalism.  Destroying the core of what makes America unique, safe, strong before the world.  The U.S. Citizens, we are in utter shock watching those whom we voted for in Congress, get there, turn on us and vote against the “Will of the People.”  

President Trump is truly protecting America and working to protect our GOP Core Principles: Strong Families; Principled, Innovative leadership; Limited Government; Honest Compassion; Opportunity for all; Quality Education; Personal Responsibility; Freedom; Rugged Individualism (Source:  Texasgop.org)

 

Last night the House approved the wall funding to avert a shutdown.  Republicans voted 217 and the Democrats 185.  Tomorrow the Senate votes.

 

 

 

The cost in human lives of not protecting our border would equal the casualties of the Korean War over a decade.  Over 10% of drunk drivers are here illegally and it equals thousands of deaths a year….4,000 Murders a year.  If you then figure in illicit drugs that come into this country and kill our brothers and sisters, our sons and daughters…this is truly about protecting America……… It flies in the face of a sovereign nation……….Rep. Tom Garrett, Virginia.

Fact Checkers are Wrong:  There is a beautiful 30-foot tall wall in the San Diego area right now.  

The Democrats are fighting for illegal aliens.  President Trump is fighting for U.S. Citizens.  

This fight is for:  sovereignty, working men and women, about safe communities, wages, living conditions, quality of life.  We are going to win because Donald Trump is not backing down.  Steven Miller

 

BOTH parties in America have contributed in the last few decades to unwise foreign policy, unwise trade policy, unwise immigration policy. President Trump came into office and has turned it all around. Getting tough on China on Trade, renegotiating NAFTA, cracking down on illegal immigration, dealing with unskilled low wage migration, reorienting our foreign policy. Issues that have affected our country for decades.

The cost of heroin in America is $230 Billion Dollars, the cost of public benefits for ILLEGAL ALIENS is $100 Billion dollars. THE WALL WILL PAY FOR ITSELF. The savings from the trade deal with offset the cost of the wall.

Donald Trump is fighting for working people, essential in American Sovereignty. 

The Democrat caucus is CONTROLLED BY THE FAR LEFT and they hate President Trump and will force a shutdown, just because they hate Him! Senator Ted Cruz

 

Do you ever wonder who Rep Pelosi and Rep Chuck Schumer are fighting for? Because their fight is not for the Will of the People of the United States of America

 

AS OF TODAY, 12/21/2018, 4:40 PM, President Trump, Vice President Pence are still in DC working on the wall funding.  Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi STILL serving who knows who. But not the safety and protection of America!

 

 

WORKFORCE: Wages Growing and Workers Continue to Move Off the Sidelines and into the Workforce December 7, 2018 – The White House

TODAY, Tuesday, December 11, 2018 – President Trump invited Minority Leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to the Oval Office to discuss the border wall, immigration, CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM, amongst many topics.  During the televised heated encounter, Rep. Nancy Pelosi MISINFORMED the public by saying that people are losing their jobs.  This prompted me to write this short little note to PROPERLY INFORM THE AMERICAN PUBLIC with information straight from the THE COUNCIL OF ECONOMIC ADVISERS.

As shown below, the unemployment rate has remained at 3.7% for the third consecutive month and payroll employment continued its historic streak of positive jobs gains.  These gains from the thriving labor market are widespread across many demographic groups.

SO it means, all Americans, all demographics (demographic: statistical characteristics of human populations (age, income) are benefiting from what President Trump is doing:  getting jobs back to America.

JUST wanted to set the record straight.  President Trump is working day and night for this Country and to help fix all that has been left broken by the last 4 presidents.  It’s America First don’t you know!

 

 

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released its monthly Employment Situation Report, which showed continued evidence of a strong American economy. The unemployment rate remained at 3.7 percent for the third consecutive month and payroll employment continued its historic streak of positive jobs gains. These gains from the thriving labor market are widespread across many demographic groups.

The unemployment rate remains at its lowest since December 1969, and this is the fifth consecutive month that the unemployment rate has been below 4 percent. This is only the 12th time since 1970 that the unemployment rate has fallen below 4 percent, with seven of these occasions occurring under President Trump this year.

Workers are also taking home bigger paychecks, with wages growing under this Administration. According to the BLS survey of employers, also released today, nominal average hourly earnings for all private workers in November rose 3.1 percent over the past 12 months, the 2nd straight month that year-over-year wage gains exceeded 3 percent. Prior to the previous month, nominal average hourly wage gains had not exceeded 3 percent since April 2009. Real wages, which take inflation into account, are also rising. Based on the most recent Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) price index data from October, inflation in the past year was 2.0 percent (November data will be available later this month).

In addition to the nearly 50-year low for the unemployment rate overall in the BLS household survey, the unemployment rate also reached a historic low for African Americans—falling by 0.3 percentage point (p.p.) in November to match a series low of 5.9 percent (last achieved in May 2018). The African-American unemployment rate has only been under 6 percent twice since the series began in 1972 and both times have been this year. Recent lows were also achieved for the unemployment rate among individuals with a high school degree but no college, whose November unemployment rate fell to 3.5 percent—the lowest since December 2000. Also, the unemployment rate for adult men (ages 20+) fell to 3.3 percent—the lowest it has been since October 2000.

Though the unemployment rate remains at a historically low 3.7 percent, there are plenty of potential workers on the sidelines who could contribute to employment growth in the future. A key measure of employment is the share of prime-age adults (ages 25-54) who are in the labor force, as these individuals are typically not in school or retired. Relative to the 83.0 percent prime-age labor force participation rate prior to Great Recession in 2007, the current 82.2 percent rate reflects the continued non-participation of 1 million prime-age Americans. So far in Q4 (October and November) of 2018, 73.2 percent of adults entering employment are coming from out of the labor force rather than from unemployment (see figure). This suggests that firms are finding workers who are not currently in the labor force and that those adults who are currently out of the labor force remain relevant for understanding further increases in employment.

Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 155,000 jobs in November, continuing a historic streak of positive job gains, the BLS employer survey found. Despite being lower than recent months and lower than expectations, job gains remain strong in 2018. Including November and revisions to September and October, employment growth averages 206,000 jobs per month in 2018—exceeding the average monthly gains in 2016 (195,000) and 2017 (182,000). So far in 2018, the economy has added at least 100,000 jobs every month and is on track to do so for a full calendar year for just the second time since 2000. Since President Trump was elected in November 2016, the U.S. economy has created 4.6 million jobs.

Job gains were apparent in most industries, including significant gains in transportation and warehousing (25,000) and in manufacturing (27,000). Overall manufacturing has added 468,000 jobs since the election. The average monthly manufacturing job gains since President Trump’s election is 20,000 per month compared to 8,000 per month in the four years prior.

This month’s employment situation report is a continuation of the strong jobs growth that has been a staple of the economy under this Administration. The low unemployment rate and the consistent employment gains which have exceeded 100,000 jobs every month this year are testaments to the effectiveness of the Administration’s economic policies.

Here is more information regarding Key U.S. Economic Assessments:  Strong and Stable by Jeffrey M. Jones of GALLUP

STORY HIGHLIGHTS

  • Economic Confidence Index at +31 in November
  • Fifty-five percent rate current economic conditions positively
  • Record-tying 68% say it is a good time to find a quality job

Bottom Line

Americans’ assessments of the U.S. economy have trended upward over the past decade as unemployment has registered nearly 50-year lows, the stock market has reached record highs and the economy has had one of its longest sustained periods of expansion. Americans are not as exuberant about the economy as they were during the late 1990s and early 2000s, perhaps because the pace of economic growth has not been quite as fast as it was back then, with annual increases in the gross domestic product consistently below 4% compared with increases of 4% or better from 1997 through 2000. Additionally, at that time the U.S. federal budget had surpluses rather than deficits. Americans’ memories of the Great Recession, or Democrats’ concerns about President Donald Trump and his policies, may also be holding their present optimism about the economy in check. Even so, it has been nearly two decades since Americans have been as positive about the U.S. economy as they are now, and the recent volatility in the stock market so far appears to have done little to shake their confidence.

GALLUP POLL

President Trump is Working Hard for Border Security – Funding for The Wall – Enter Stage Right: Nancy Pelosi…Chuck Schumer – 12/11/2018 – President Trump Keeps HIS Promises!

President Trump is a Fighter for America! He met with Two formidable Opposing Leaders – He is willing to Work with the Democrats!

President Trump and Vice President Pence met with Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi – live while the world watched.  President Trump made it clear to the world that HE is willing to Shut Down the Government if America does not get funding from the Democrats for the WALL to protect America and ALL U.S. Citizens.

The Democrats keep talking about a Continuing Resolution (CR) but not the amount that President Trump needs for the Wall and Border Protection.  President Trump conveyed to Chuck and Nancy that:  Without the Wall, there is No Deal! Democrats are not willing to give President Trump the sum of money necessary to continue building the wall.

This country needs border security and we will get the wall done.  We need to have effective all security.  We need the wall in certain parts.  President Trump

President Trump told Chuck Schumer:

Yes! If we don’t get what we want one way or the other, whether it’s through you, through our military, through anything you want to call it, I will shut down the government. I am proud to shut down the government for BORDER SECURITY CHUCK.  Because the people in this country don’t want criminals and people who have lots of problems, and drugs pouring into our country. I will take the mantle of shutting down…..And I am going to shut it down for border security.

Oval Office11:40 A.M. ESTTHE PRESIDENT:  Okay, thank you very much.  It’s a great honor to have Nancy Pelosi with us and Chuck Schumer with us.  And we’ve actually worked very hard on a couple of things that are happening.  Criminal justice reform — as you know, we’ve just heard word — got word that Mitch McConnell and the group, we’re going to be putting it up for a vote.  We have great Democrat support, great Republican support.  So, criminal justice reform, something that people have been trying to get — how long, Nancy?  Many years.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  A long time.

THE PRESIDENT:  Many, many years.  Looks like it’s going to be passing, hopefully — famous last words — on a very bipartisan way.  And it’s really something we’re all very proud of.  And again, tremendous support from Republicans and tremendous support from Democrats.  And I think it’s going to get a very good vote.  And we’ll see soon enough.  But it will be up for a vote very shortly.  A lot of years they’ve been waiting for it.

The other thing, the farm bill is moving along nicely.  And I guess they’ll be voting on Friday or so.  But pretty close.

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  Soon.  Soon.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  (Inaudible.)

THE PRESIDENT:  And we think the farm bill is in very good shape.  A lot of good things are happening with it, and our farmers are well taken care of.  And again, that will be quite bipartisan and it will happen pretty soon.

And then we have the easy one, the wall.  That will be the one that will be the easiest of all.  What do you think, Chuck?  Maybe not?

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  It’s called “funding the government,” Mr. President.

THE PRESIDENT:  (Laughs.)  So we’re going to see.  But I will tell you, the wall will get built.  We’ll see what happens.

It is not an easy situation because the Democrats have a different view, I think, than — I can say — the Republicans.  We have great Republican support.  We don’t have Democrat support.  But we’re going to talk about that now.  We’re going to see.

One thing that I do have to say is: Tremendous amounts of wall have already been built, and a lot of — a lot of wall.  When you include the renovation of existing fences and walls, we’ve renovated a tremendous amount and we’ve done a lot of work.  In San Diego, we’re building new walls right now.  And we’ve — right next to San Diego, we’ve completed a major section of wall and it’s really worked well.

So, a lot of wall has been built.  We don’t talk about that, but we might as well start, because it’s building — it’s being built right now, big sections of wall.  And we will continue that.

And one way or the other, it’s going to get built.  I’d like not to see a government closing, a shutdown.  We will see what happens over the next short period of time.  But the wall is a very important thing to us.

I might put it a different way.  Border security is extremely important, and we have to take care of border security.  When you look at what happened with the caravans, with the people, with a lot of — we shut it down; we had no choice.  We shut it down.  But it could be a lot easier if we had real border security.

I just want to pay my respects to the Border Patrol agents and officers.  They’ve been incredible.  The ICE agents and officers, they’ve been incredible.  And very importantly, our military.  Our military went in and they did an incredible job.  They have been really, really spectacular.

A lot of the people that wanted to come into the country, and really, they were to come in no matter how they wanted to come in — they were going to come in even in a rough way — many of these people are leaving now and they’re going back to their countries: Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, and other countries.  They’re leaving.  If you noticed, it’s getting a lot less crowded in Mexico.  And a lot of them are going to stay in Mexico, and the Mexican government has been working with us very well.  So we appreciate that.  But they haven’t been coming into our country.  We can’t let people come in that way.

So that’s pretty much it.  We’re going to talk about the wall.  I wanted to talk about criminal justice reform, just to let you know how positive that is.  I want to talk about the farm bill, how positive that is.  And I want to talk about the wall.  And I will tell you, it’s a tough issue because we are in very opposite sides of — I really think I can say “border security,” but certainly the wall.

But the wall will get built.  A lot of the wall is built.  It’s been very effective.  I asked for a couple of notes on that.  If you look at San Diego, illegal traffic dropped 92 percent once the wall was up.  El Paso, illegal traffic dropped 72 percent, then ultimately 95 percent, once the wall was up.
In Tucson, Arizona, illegal traffic dropped 92 percent.  Yuma, it dropped illegal traffic 95 to 96 percent.

I mean — and when I say “dropped,” the only reason we even have any percentage where people got through is because they walk and go around areas that aren’t built.  It dropped virtually 100 percent in the areas where the wall is.  So, I mean, it’s very effective.

If you really want to find out how effective a wall is, just ask Israel — 99.9 percent effective.  And our wall will be every bit as good as that, if not better.

So we’ve done a lot of work on the wall; a lot of wall is built.  A lot of people don’t know that.  A lot of wall is renovated.  We have walls that were in very bad condition that are now in A1 tip-top shape.  And, frankly, some wall has been reinforced by our military.  Our military has done a fantastic job.  So the wall will get built, but we may not — we may not have an agreement today.  We probably won’t.  But we have an agreement on other things that are really good.

Nancy, would you like to say something?

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  Well, thank you, Mr. President, for the opportunity to meet with you so that we can work together in a bipartisan way to meet the needs of the American people.

I think the American people recognize that we must keep government open, that a shutdown is not worth anything, and that you should not have a Trump shutdown.  You have the White House —

THE PRESIDENT:  Did you say “Trump” — oh, oh.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  A “Trump shutdown.”  You have the White House —

THE PRESIDENT:  I was going to call it a “Pelosi shutdown.”

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  You have the Senate.  You have the House of Representatives.  You have the votes.  You should pass it right now.

THE PRESIDENT:  No, we don’t have the votes, Nancy, because in the Senate, we need 60 votes and we don’t have it.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  No, no, but in the House, you could bring it up right now, today.

THE PRESIDENT:  Yeah, but I can’t — excuse me.  But I can’t get it passed in the House if it’s not going to pass in the Senate.  I don’t want to waste time.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  Well, the fact is you can get it started that way.

THE PRESIDENT:  The House we can get passed very easily, and we do.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  Okay, then do it.  Then do it.

THE PRESIDENT:  But the problem is the Senate, because we need 10 Democrats to vote, and they won’t vote.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  No, no, that’s not the point, Mr. President.  The point is —

THE PRESIDENT:  It’s sort of the point.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  — that there are equities to be weighed.  And we are here to have a conversation —

THE PRESIDENT:  Correct.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  — in a careful way.  So I don’t think we should have a debate in front of the press on this.  But the fact is, the House Republicans could bring up this bill, if they had the votes, immediately, and set the tone for what you want.

THE PRESIDENT:  If we thought we were going to get it passed in the Senate, Nancy, we would do it immediately.  We would get it passed very easily in the House.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  No, that’s not the point.  That’s not the point.

THE PRESIDENT:  Nancy, I’d have it passed in two seconds.  It doesn’t matter, though, because we can’t get it passed in the Senate because we need 10 Democrat votes.  That’s the problem.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  Well, again, let us have our conversation —

THE PRESIDENT:  That’s right.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  — and then we can meet with the press again.  But the fact is, is that legislating — which is what we do —

THE PRESIDENT:  Right.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  — you begin, you make your point, you state your case.  That’s what the House Republicans could do, if they had the votes.  But there are no votes in the House, a majority of votes, for a wall — no matter where you start.

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  That is exactly right.  You don’t have the votes in the House.

THE PRESIDENT:  If I needed the votes for the wall in the House, I would have them — in one session, it would be done.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  Well, then go do it.  Go do it.

THE PRESIDENT:  It doesn’t help because we need 10 Democrats in the Senate.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  No, don’t put it on the Senate.  Put it on the negotiation.

THE PRESIDENT:  Okay, let me ask you this.  Just — and we’re doing this in a very friendly manner.  It doesn’t help for me to take a vote in the House, where I will win easily with the Republicans —

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  You will not win.

THE PRESIDENT:  It doesn’t help to take that vote because I’m not going to get the vote of the Senate.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  Well, don’t blame it on the Senate, Mr. President.

THE PRESIDENT:  I need 10 senators.  That’s the problem.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  Mr. President, you have the White House, you have the Senate.

THE PRESIDENT:  I have the White House.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  You have the House of Representatives.

THE PRESIDENT:  The White House is done.  And the House would give me the vote if I wanted it.  But I can’t because I need —

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  But you can’t — you can’t —

THE PRESIDENT:  Nancy, I need 10 votes from Chuck.

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  All right, let me say something here.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  Mr. President, let me — let me just say one thing.  The fact is you do not have the votes in the House.

THE PRESIDENT:  Nancy, I do.  And we need border security.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  Well, let’s take the vote and we’ll find out.

THE PRESIDENT:  Nancy.  Nancy.  We need border security.  It’s very simple.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  Of course we do.

THE PRESIDENT:  We need border security.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  We do.

THE PRESIDENT:  People are pouring into our country, including terrorists.  We have terrorists.  We caught 10 terrorists over the last very short period of time.  Ten.  These are very serious people.  Our border agents, all of our law enforcement has been incredible what they’ve done.  But we caught 10 terrorists.  These are people that were looking to do harm.

We need the wall.  We need — more important than anything, we need border security, of which the wall is just a piece.  But it’s important.

Chuck, did you want to say something?

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  Yeah.  Here’s what I want to say: We have a lot of disagreements here.  The Washington Post today gave you a whole lot of Pinocchios because they say you constantly misstate how much the wall is — how much of the wall is built and how much is there.

But that’s not the point here.  We have a disagreement about the wall —

THE PRESIDENT:  Well, the Washington Post — (laughs) —

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  — whether it’s effective or it isn’t.  Not on border security, but on the wall.

We do not want to shut down the government.  You have called 20 times to shut down the government.  You say, “I want to shut down the government.”  We don’t.  We want to come to an agreement.  If we can’t come to an agreement, we have solutions that will pass the House and Senate right now, and will not shut down the government.  And that’s what we’re urging you to do.  Not threaten to shut down the government —

THE PRESIDENT:  Chuck —

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  — because you —

THE PRESIDENT:  You don’t want to shut down the government, Chuck.

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  Let me just finish. Because you can’t get your way.

THE PRESIDENT:  Because the last time you shut it down you got killed.

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  Yeah.  Let me say something, Mr. President.  You just say, “My way, or we’ll shut down the government.”  We have a proposal that Democrats and Republicans will support to do a CR that will not shut down the government.  We urge you to take it.

THE PRESIDENT:  And if it’s not good border security, I won’t take it.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  It is good border security.

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  It is very good border security.

THE PRESIDENT:  And if it’s not good border security, I won’t take it.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  It’s actually what the border security asked for.

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  It’s what the border —

THE PRESIDENT:  Because when you look at these numbers of the effectiveness of our border security, and when you look at the job that we’re doing with our military —

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  You just said it is effective.

THE PRESIDENT:  Can I be — can I tell you something?

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  Yeah, you just said it’s effective.

THE PRESIDENT:  Without a wall — these are only areas where you have the walls.

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  We want to do this —

THE PRESIDENT:  Where you have walls, Chuck, it’s effective.  Where you don’t have walls, it is not effective.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  Wait a second.  Let’s call a halt to this.

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  Yeah.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  Let’s call a halt to this.  We’ve come in here as the first branch of government: Article I, the legislative branch.  We’re coming in, in good faith, to negotiate with you about how we can keep the government open.

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  Open.

THE PRESIDENT:  We’re going to keep it open —

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  The American —

THE PRESIDENT:  — if we have border security.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  The American —

THE PRESIDENT:  If we don’t have border security, Chuck —

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  I’m with you.

THE PRESIDENT:  — we’re not going to keep it open.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  I’m with you.  We are going to have border security.

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  And it’s the same border –

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  Effective border security.

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  You’re bragging about what has been done.

THE PRESIDENT:  By us.

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  We want to do the same thing we did last year, this year.  That’s our proposal.  If it’s good then, it’s good now, and it won’t shut down the government.

THE PRESIDENT:  Chuck, we can build a much bigger section with more money.

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  Let’s debate —

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  We have taken —

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  Let’s debate in private.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:   We have taken this conversation —

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  Okay?

THE PRESIDENT:  Okay.

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  Yeah.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  — to a place that is devoid, frankly, of fact.  And we can dispel that.

THE PRESIDENT:  We need border security.  And I think we all agree that we need border security.

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  Yes, we do.

THE PRESIDENT:  Is that right?

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  We do.

THE PRESIDENT:  See?  We get along.

Thank you, everybody.

Q    (Inaudible), Mr. President.  You say border security and the wall.  Can you have border security without the wall?  There’s a commonality on border security.

THE PRESIDENT:  No, you need the wall.  The wall is a part of border security.

Q    Are you re-defining what it means to have border security?
SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  Yes.

THE PRESIDENT:  Yeah.  We need border security.  The wall is a part of border security.  You can’t have very good border security without the wall, no.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  That’s simply not true.  That is a political promise.  Border security is a way to effectively honor our responsibilities.

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  And the experts say you can do border security without a wall, which is wasteful and doesn’t solve the problem.

THE PRESIDENT:  It totally solves the problem.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  Again, but I don’t want to take this —

THE PRESIDENT:  And it’s very important.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  Unfortunately, this has spiraled downward from — we came at a place to say, “How do we meet the needs of American people who have needs?”  The economy has — people are losing their jobs.  The market is in a mood.  Our members are already (inaudible).

THE PRESIDENT:  Well, we have the lowest unemployment that we’ve had in 50 years.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  Sixty people of the Republican Party have lost — are losing their offices now because of the transition.  People are not — the morale is not —

THE PRESIDENT:  And we’ve gained in the Senate.  Nancy, we’ve gained in the Senate.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  The morale —

THE PRESIDENT:  Excuse me.  Did we win the Senate?

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  — is not (inaudible).

THE PRESIDENT:  We won the Senate.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  When the President brags that he won North Dakota and Indiana, he’s in real trouble.

THE PRESIDENT:  I did.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  Let me say this.

THE PRESIDENT:  We did win North Dakota.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  This is the most unfortunate thing.  We came in here in good faith, and we are entering into this kind of a discussion in the public view.

THE PRESIDENT:  But it’s not bad, Nancy.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  Let us — no, but it’s —

THE PRESIDENT:  It’s called transparency.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  I know.  But it’s not transparency when we’re not stipulating to a set of facts.  And when we wanted to have a debate with you about saying we’d confront some of these facts  —

THE PRESIDENT:  You know what?  We need border security.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  — without saying to the public, “This isn’t true.”

THE PRESIDENT:  That’s what we’re going to be talking about: border security.  If we don’t have border security, we’ll shut down the government.  This country needs border security.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  We agree with that.

THE PRESIDENT:  The wall is a part of border security.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  (Inaudible.)

THE PRESIDENT:  Let’s have a talk.  We’re going to get the wall built and we’ve done a lot of wall already.

Q    Mr. President, how big a part of border security is the wall?  Is that the —

THE PRESIDENT:  It’s a big section.  It’s a big part of it.

Q    Is it everything that you need?

THE PRESIDENT:  It’s a big part of it.  We need to have effective border security.  We need a wall in certain parts — no, not in all parts — but in certain parts of a 2,000-mile border, we need a wall.

Q    How much money, Mr. President?

THE PRESIDENT:  We are doing it much under budget.  We’re actually way under —

Q    (Inaudible) this conversation.

THE PRESIDENT:  — budget on the areas that we’ve renovated and areas that we’ve built.  I would say if we got —

Q    Do you still need the —

THE PRESIDENT:  — if we got $5 billion, we could do a tremendous chunk of wall.

Q    Is that mandatory?

Q    Would you accept less though?  And are your guests conversely willing to offer more?

THE PRESIDENT:  Well, we’re going to see.  We’re going to see.  Look, we have to have the wall.  This isn’t a question; this is a national emergency.  Drugs are pouring into our country.  People with tremendous medical difficulty and medical problems are pouring in, and in many — in many cases, it’s contagious.  They’re pouring into our country.  We have to have border security.  We have to have a wall as part of border security.

And I don’t think we really disagree so much.  I also know that, you know, Nancy is in a situation where it’s not easy for her to talk right now, and I understand that.  And I fully understand that.  We’re going to have a good discussion and we’re going to see what happens.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  Mr. President —

THE PRESIDENT:  But we have to have border security.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  Mr. President, please don’t characterize the strength that I bring to this meeting as the Leader of the House Democrats who just won a big victory.  But let me —

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  Elections have consequences, Mr. President.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  Let me just say —

THE PRESIDENT:  That’s right.  And that’s why the country is doing so well.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  Let me say this: What the President is representing in terms of his cards over there are not factual.  We have to have to an evidence-based conversation about what does work, what money has been spent, and how effective it is.

This isn’t about — this is about the security of our country.  We take an oath to protect and defend, and we don’t want to have that mischaracterized by anyone.  And we are —

THE PRESIDENT:  I agree with that.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  — that we are —

THE PRESIDENT:  No, no I agree with that.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  — we are (inaudible).

So let us have a conversation where we don’t have to contradict, in public, the statistics that you put forth but instead can have a conversation about what would really work and what the American people deserve from us at this uncertain time in their lives, where they have apprehension.

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  The one thing I think we can agree on is we shouldn’t shut down the government over a dispute.  And you want to shut it down.  You keep talking about it.

THE PRESIDENT:  I — no, no, no, no, no.  The last time, Chuck, you shut it down —

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  No, no, no.

THE PRESIDENT:  — and then you opened it up very quickly.

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  Twenty times.  Twenty times.

THE PRESIDENT:  And I don’t want to do what you did.  But, Chuck —

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  Twenty times you have called for, “I will shut down the government if I don’t get my wall.”  None of us have said —

THE PRESIDENT:  You want to know something?

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  You’ve said it.

THE PRESIDENT:  Okay, you want to put that on my —

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  You said it.

THE PRESIDENT:  I’ll take it.

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  Okay, good.

THE PRESIDENT:  You know what I’ll say: Yes, if we don’t get what we want, one way or the other — whether it’s through you, through a military, through anything you want to call — I will shut down the government.  Absolutely.

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  Okay.  Fair enough.  We disagree.

THE PRESIDENT:  And I am proud — and I’ll tell you what —

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  We disagree.

THE PRESIDENT:  I am proud to shut down the government for border security, Chuck, because the people of this country don’t want criminals and people that have lots of problems and drugs pouring into our country.  So I will take the mantle.  I will be the one to shut it down.  I’m not going to blame you for it.  The last time you shut it down, it didn’t work.  I will take the mantle of shutting down.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  That is (inaudible).

THE PRESIDENT:  And I’m going to shut it down for border security.

SENATE MINORITY LEADER SCHUMER:  But we believe you shouldn’t shut it down.

THE PRESIDENT:  Okay.  Thank you very much everybody.  Thank you.

HOUSE SPEAKER-DESIGNATE PELOSI:  (Inaudible) shut down the government.

Q    Chief of Staff?

Q    Have you picked a Chief of Staff, Mr. President?

THE PRESIDENT:  Thank you very much.  Yeah, we’re interviewing a lot of — we have a lot of great people for Chief of Staff.  A lot of people want the job.  A lot of people want the job.  And I have some great people.  A lot of friends of mine want it.  A lot of people that Chuck and Nancy know very well want it.  I think people you’d like.  We have a lot of people that want the job — Chief of Staff.  So we’ll be seeing what happens very soon.  We’re in no rush.  We’re in no rush.

Q    Why?  Why no rush, Mr. President?

THE PRESIDENT:  Why?  Because we have a wonderful Chief of Staff right now.  Just no — we are in no rush.  Over a period of a week or two, or maybe less, we’ll announce who it’s going to be.  But we have a lot of people that want the position.

Thank you very much everybody.  Thanks.
